LOCATION: This 972.785 (LlanoCAD) is located in Llano County, known as the Deer Capital of Texas and surrounded by numerous old family ranches mixed with improved showplaces. Being one of few large ranches on the market this Hill country ranch is located just 10 miles N of Llano, Tx, at Valley Spring. Only 35 miles from Horseshoe Bay while the State Capitol Austin lies about 60 miles east.
The area is composed primarily of medium to large working/recreational ranches, with a smattering of smaller tracts. Agriculture and outdoor recreation are the primary economic drivers, with cattle as the livestock component, and deer hunting leading the way for recreation. The vast majority of acreage is usable with several varying types of sandy loam. This was at one time a working cattle ranch, and this size acreage could feasibly accommodate upwards of 100 head of cattle. With little effort, many of the once cleared pastures could be reclaimed of the small mesquite regrowth if one wished to convert the property back to its original use.
For those in need, Llano also has a municipal airport 2 miles north of town with a paved runway 4202 ft by 75 ft. and HSB has an airport with a paved runway 5977 ft by 100 ft.
WATER: Three working water wells (including one windmill, one solar) are located on the ranch servicing the metal barn, hunters camp area and troughs. There are several stock ponds and a large 3-4 acre tank. There is a fourth well that is unequipped. The ranch is blessed with the very scenic seasonal Willow Creek traversing North & South through the middle of the ranch. Large Granite boulders, high cut ridges along the creeks edge and large overhanging Oak trees with Tarzan vines make walking along the creek quite an adventure.
